Lineage Logistics backs Heat team to help feed America

Miami, Florida, USA: US baseball team, the Miami Heat, has partnered with Lineage Logistics and Feeding America to provide immediate help those affected by Covid-19.

The goal of the partnership is to raise awareness for Lineage Logistics’ Share A Meal campaign, which aims to help provide 100 million meals in response to Covid-19 for those in need.

Lineage Logistics, which operates several warehouses in South Florida, has committed to hiring between 20 to 40 AmericanAirlines Arena event staff currently sidelined due to the postponement of Heat games and Arena events.

“The Covid-19 pandemic has taken an enormous and stressful toll on lives of people across the globe,” said Eric Woolworth, president Heat Group’s Business Operations.

“Many of our friends and neighbors in South Florida are rightfully worried about putting food on the table. By joining forces with Lineage Logistics and Feeding South Florida, we hope to ease that burden.”

“The Covid-19 virus presents extraordinary challenges for moving, storing, and distributing food on a large scale,” said Greg Lehmkuhl, chief executive, Lineage Logistics.

“We are incredibly proud of the business we have created at Lineage – to solve for this exact challenge.  We are excited about our partnership with the Miami Heat to help feed those in need in the South Florida community.”
